The Musée d’Archéologie nationale is the French National Archaeology Museum, covering pre-historic times to the Merovingian period. It is located in the Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Yvelines, about 19 kilometres (12 mi) west of Paris.

These finds, discovered on the French territory, are presented by chronological periods: Paleolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Roman period (Roman Gaul) and the first Middle Ages (Merovingian Gaul). A collection of foreign archaeological and ethnological objects are presented in the comparative archaeology room.
